“The best people in life make the world a bigger place, then help you grow to fit it.” – David Stahler Jr, Spinning Out
This seems to be part of my journey at the moment. I caught a vision of a better place. I realized that I needed to grow myself in order to support its birth. And now I need to grow the world to a bigger place. I think that every movement begins from the place of making themselves bigger or their vision will be limited by them.
I guess that childbirth is a good analogy when you think of how your physical body expands to hold the child as they grow. And when you give birth it is as though your whole world exists in the tiny face that is looking up at you. You just have to make the world a better place in that moment.
A place where our children can have roots to grow up happy and safe in their environment. A place where no child gets left behind educationally; and where it is safe for children to play in their own front yard without danger of being shot or abducted.
Instead of decaying neighborhoods, we have a community that you can call home, not just a street where you house is located. A place where people come together to support each other; a community that is supported not just by the people who live there, but by both national and local businesses and charities that work together to generate solutions to each problem they face.
